I'm new to Wealth-Lab and don't see how to access point & figure charts.
Is there a way to access the charts to use to work on a trading strategy?
If there are already programs available, I'd appreciate someone telling me how to access them.

Sure it's possible. Here's how to start:

* Wealth-Lab User Guide (Help menu) > Charting > Chart Styles > Trending Chart Styles > Point and Figure
* WealthScript Programming Guide (Help menu) > Backtesting with ChartStyles.Trending > Column Class (Reference) > Point and Figure

* Two strategies, one included in the installation ("Point & Figure (PnF) Basic") and one downloadable: ActiveTrader 2011-02 | PnF Double Top (follow "Instructions for Script Download").
